Minor in Plant Biology


The Department of Plant Biology offers a Minor in Plant Biology to all baccalaureate students in any major, except Plant Biology. As the fundamental discipline of the plant sciences, plant biology involves the study of the structure, function, classification, diversity, and interactions of plants. The program also provides a strong background for research in all other areas of the plant sciences, including plant molecular biology.

  • Courses taken to satisfy Core Areas I through V may not be counted as course work for the Plant Biology minor.
  • Courses taken in Core Area VI may be counted as course work for the Plant Biology minor.

Required Courses
